Galliard - Strange Pleasure (remastered)

The first album by this rarity of early psych/progressive/jazz-rock/horn-rock/etc. who released two albums on the Nova series and whose albums are very rare and impossible to find until this reissue. Supervised by Mark Powell, you get great sound, good liner notes and more.

"Galliard is a sextet formed in the summer of 68, and developed a psychedelic type of brass rock, fronted by twin wind players Caswell and Smith and singer Geoff Brown. They recorded two albums on the Deram Nova label (the subsidiary prog label of Decca records) around the turn of the 70’s decade, when brass rock was the rage. Their first album Strange Pleasure By Galliard, released in 69, was quite eclectic, ranging from Medieval to Flamenco/Spanish music."-Hugues Chantraine/ "Formed in the Midlands in 1969 featuring Andrew Abbott (bass), Geoff Brown (vocals), Dave Caswell (saxophones), Richard Pannell (guitar), Les Podraza (drums) and John Smith (woodwind), this innovative group recorded their first album for Decca's Deram Nova imprint in 1970. Like many other Nova acts, Galliard failed to achieve the commercial success they deserved. Both "Strange Pleasure" and their follow up release "New Dawn" (also released this month by Esoteric) are among the most collectable and valuable records of the Progressive Rock genre."
